Hello Blender people,
This should be really simple: add a lamp using Space - Add - Lamp - Lamp. But when I try to do so, the new lamp is nowhere to be found. It has a reference in the Outliner but it’s absolutely nowhere to be found. I tried zooming right out in all views
I tried another trick, duplicating the existing lamp, then translating it in the 3D view. But when I try to move the play-head in the IPO editor, the new lamp magically vanishes (actually I think it snaps back to the same place as the original lamp. I tried adding new keyframes to the duplicate, but there seems to be some connection between the original lamp and the new one, and I can’t separate them out. This makes one of the lamps move, and the other vanishes.
Either way I can’t work out what’s wrong. My animation is already complex (it should be finished today …) and I can’t start again. It consists of a number of objects that move in time. Adding lamps in a test scene - which has no animation - works great. But I can’t seem to add a lamp to this scene. Can someone help me? I hope I’ve given you enough to go on.
Please help !
